He was an avid Cowboys football fan, and in his leisure time, he loved to read, but he will always be remembered for his love of walking. Many people who did not know him personally, recognized him as “the gentleman who walked along South Live Oak Drive every morning.” He developed a discipline that he kept until his health would nor allow him to do so anymore.
